Son of a Beach
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The sandy beaches and the marshy edges of the east shore of Lake Huron are tremendously rich in flowering plants -- this is Centaurea stoebe, a.k.a. Spotted Knapweed. Although it is a much prettier flower than its name suggests, it is classified in this province as a noxious weed, being both poisonous and difficult to control! |
Thanks to Argus, Maurydv and Lousat for pointing me in the right direction!
The high speed at which this was shot was necessitated by high winds, a frequent occurrence along the lake this past summer.

A very fine portrait of this species of Centaurea, the DOF being fine to emphasise the flower with nice sharpness and the colour contrast with the OOF bare BG is excellent.
Nice to see you back on TN!
Thanks and kind regards,
Ciao Silke, splendid light on lovely flower, excellent sharpness and wonderful bright colors, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio
